Back by popular demand, Irene Schneider's illustrious and beloved ballet presents a modern twist on the timeless classic. Schneider's Swan Lake explores the human emotion of a romantic love contrasted against a realistic and practical love of an arranged marriage. The White Swan comes to Siegfried in his dream, embodying the ideal of true love, while Odile (Black Swan) is presented by the evil Rothbarth as the woman Siegfried is to wed. Schneider is able to give us a story that is more relatable to modern day while maintaining the tradition and essence of the Swan Lake we all expect to see. Audiences will not be disappointed to experience the classic second Act with the beautiful swans in unison and the tragic ending of Act 4. The diverse talents of Coastal City Ballet along with the beautiful score of Pytor Tchaikovsky, glorious costumes and imaginative sets brings this heart wrenching love story to life.
Coastal City Ballet's production of Swan Lake features a professional principal cast with close connections to the company. Dancing the title roles are Ana Paula Oioli, former dancer with Thueringen Ballett and current Company Director, as Odette; Yoko Kanomata, former dancer with Atlanta Ballet and current company member, as Odile; Diego Ramalho, current dancer with Ballet Edmonton and former company member, as Siegfried; Kostyantyn Keshyshev, former soloist with Royal Winnipeg Ballet and current Ballet Master, as Rothbarth; and Marcio Teixeira, current dancer with Ballet Jorgen and current company member, as Benno.
